Silicon Works Adopts Hardent’s VESA DSC Decoder IP

The Hardent VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) IP solution will enable Silicon Works to deliver next-generation consumer electronics products with ultra high-definition displays.

Hardent, a VESA® member and provider of IP products, and Silicon Works, a leading innovator in the system semiconductor industry, today announced that Silicon Works has adopted the Hardent VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) decoder IP. The VESA DSC IP enables Silicon Works to deliver compelling ultra high-definition (UHD) displays while meeting critical time-to-market constraints.

The growing trend for UHD displays in consumer electronics products brings new ASIC design challenges for electronics manufacturers, as high-throughput video needs to be carried between a device’s components. Released in April 2014, the VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) Standard applies visually lossless video compression between the application processor and the display sub-system. This allows manufacturers to use current industry transport mechanisms, such as MIPI® DSI and VESA DisplayPort™, with higher resolution displays while decreasing transmission bandwidth by up to 3X.

“The visually lossless performance of VESA DSC enables us to deliver display resolutions beyond what was previously possible”, says DR Young Sun Na, Principal Research Engineer and Design Leader at Silicon Works. “Hardent’s DSC decoder IP provided us with a low-risk solution and a faster tape-out date”. As a member of the VESA DSC Task Group, Hardent was actively involved in defining the DSC standard.

Hardent’s  VESA DSC decoder and encoder IP cores are the first of their kind on the market and provide a ready-made solution for adopting the VESA DSC 1.1 standard. “We are pleased to have a market leader such as Silicon Works adopt our VESA DSC IP solution”, said Alain Legault, vice president of IP products at Hardent. “Silicon Works’ successful adoption of our IP demonstrates how industry leaders can easily and reliably support the VESA DSC standard”.

Contact Hardent today to arrange a demo of VESA DSC or  view this video presentation for more information about VESA DSC and Hardent’s IP solutions.
